Hey guys I've been going on a manga reading spree lately and I've run out of things to read. Right now I'm into shounen romantic comedy(with the emphasis on comedy) but I cant find anymore good ones. Some of my favorites: Mx0, Love Collage, Hayate the Combat Butler, anything by Adachi, and HDSK (does this count as a romantic comedy?). I've tried School Rumble (several times) but I never really got into it.... plot was too disconnected for me.

Anyone have some suggestions for me?

i you liked love collage, i'd give midori days a try it's the same mangaka.Also pretty face, love hina, and school rumble (this one is good in the beginning and lethally comical after a few vol, super suggestion) dead

Thanks for the suggestions. Ive read Pretty Face (loved it) and Love Hina (meh) already but I havent given Midori Days a look so Ill do that. As for School Rumble, I keep hearing its awesome but when I read the first volume it was very.... meh. Each chapter just seemed like a random instance in a character's life and I didnt really connect with any of them. Does it ever become more.... continuous?

kind of. the randomness all interconnects and tends to focus on one or two characters for a long time. I dont know if you'll like the later parts better, but it's def different than the beginning

I tried reading school rumble twice and both times I inexpicably stopped reading it at some point either I found something else or I couldnt connect dots coherently

Have you tried Tsubasa Reservoir chronicles? it edges more towards action and romatics in the beggining but it gets deeper and besides just watching CLAMP piece together every one of their previous and current works while still managing to place every type of relationship and still make it work is fun to watch

You're better off watching the anime than reading the manga of school rumble. its waay funnier with the voice overs. biggrin

I'd recommend Suzuka but its also full of angst/drama so read at you're own risk. but still, highly recommended.

There's also:
Rosario+Vampire
Unbalancex2
To-Love-Ru
Seto no hanayome

(feels like i've been recommending the same thing to other members over and over again) laugh

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I've read most of them already though, except for Rosario+Vampire so I guess I'll try that now.

I'll second that one.

Though I guess it might not be as much of a romantic comedy xD
